Dear UCU Members,

USS pension changes – information session for UCU members on 9 January at 12.30pm

Join UCU National Lay Negotiator Dr Carlo Morelli from the University of Dundee and the UCU Senate House committee for a briefing on the proposed changes to the USS pension scheme

When: Tuesday 9 January 2018 at 12.30pm
Where: Senate Room, Senate House
Who can attend: open to UCU members

Evidence indicates that University staff highly value the defined benefit pension offered through USS – it is one of the most valued elements of our employment packages.

We are all therefore very concerned about Universities UK proposals to remove the defined benefit element of the USS pension scheme, bringing an end to the notion of a guaranteed pension and reducing our entitlements by up to 40%.

But what is UCU, both at Senate House and nationally, planning to do in response to these proposals? What do the proposals mean for me? Why are Universities UK proposing this now and why are they rushing through these proposals? What can I do to support this campaign?

See you for this important briefing session on Tuesday at 12.30pm. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided.

Best wishes,

Tim
